Being a foodie, let us focus on those meaty, perfectly grilled German sausages, shall we?
Last Friday lunch was spent with two of my favorite local food bloggers at Mr Berlin. It's a relatively-new restaurant located along Shenton Way, within the busy CBD area of Singapore. Mr Berlin specializes in authentic German currywurst which is a very popular snack made out of chopped chicken/pork sausage and served with a rich tomato-based sauce and a dash of curry powder. For a country that loves anything with curry, I can see how currywurst can be the next food trend hopefully not only in Singapore but within the region too.
Ordering is a breeze! First, you select what type of sausage you'd like to have -- chicken or pork. Next, you choose the spicy level that you could take -- Berlin Calling (mild), Go West (moderate), Break the Wall (hot). Lastly, you choose your sides! Would you like to have some traditional Red/White Fries (S$12.50) with your currywurst or perhaps a piece of Organic Bread Roll (S$10.90) instead.
Between the two types of meat though, my heart belongs to the Pork sausages. I guess it's a personal preference as I grew up eating pork sausages more than the chicken variety.
It was indeed a fun experience to visit Mr Berlin and to try authentic German currywurst. For one thing, this would save you from having to fly all the way to Germany to enjoy some sausages and currywurst as we finally have it here in Singapore. Mr Berlin is definitely the place to go for a quick meaty lunch or to celebrate the end of a work day with a tall glass of beer with friends.
